I work as an in-house designer for a media company. It’s not great. I’m underpaid and overworked and my job is to basically guess what my boss wants because I’m never given any briefs, but whatever.
Over the past few weeks, our internet has had a habit of dropping out randomly. It never lasts too long, and it’s not too big a hurdle. But on this particular day, it dropped out completely.
We contacted the ISP to find out that we’ll be completely without internet for the day.
Me: So… do we go home?
Boss: No, keep working. You have a phone. Use your data.
Me: …Will you reimburse me for my data?
Boss: Just get to work.
Great. It was costing me money to work here.
I get that bosses cut corners, but when your entire business model revolves around sending files back and forth, invest in good internet service.
